Now that 80s guilty-pleasure "Miami Connection" is currently back in theaters and blowing the minds of moviegoers, it's time for the inevitable Academy Awards campaign -- hence this awesome "For Your Consideration" spot. After all, we defy anyone to say they believe that the tour de force performance by the great thespian Maurice Smith is less than astonishing. It is, without a doubt, a one-of-a-kind cinematic marvel.
"Miami Connection," which tells the story of a synth rock band that fights cocaine-dealing ninjas, continues to play in theaters in select cities this month. The movie will also be released on Blu-Ray starting on December 11th.
The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida's narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martialarts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song "Against the Ninja," Mark (taekwondo master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world's smelliest underbelly. It'll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can't stop until they've completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the "stupid cocaine" ... and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!
